Translation of email template

on 3/24/15, 11:23 AM 678 views

Hi ! I'm on Odoo (v8).

I have the latest Odoo build, which should fix the email template issue fixed by this commit:


I have modified the fr.po file in the sale module, to add missing french terms. I have done this to be able to apply the translations to all by databases.

I have tried:

  • update sale module

  • synchronise terms

  • load a translation (with erase checked)

But no matter what I do, in the database where I'm testing this, the email template for sale quotations/orders is not translated.

Can someone:

  • explain me why it does not work

  • how can I make this work

  • and finally, what the actions I have done were doing

I really start to hate the translations issues, and since I'm not sure how to manage their application in the database...

thanks !

Hi, verify you have not 2 rows for source and value for your terms.

when you load your translation, for 2 first boxes, set fr_FR and check box erase

I will try that. So far, I have put Français in the first one, and fr_FR in the second one. That might be the issue.

Ok, I filtered the translations with module is sale and hello in old source, and I have found two entries, as you suggested. I will try with a new database, to see if this can be avoided. But now, I have more hints on what is going on. Thanks !
